    Athens 2017: In the footsteps of ancient Greece

    Four years ago, I fulfilled a big travel dream and visited Athens. Sit back and get ready for really crazy stories, 150 photos of the Acropolis from various parts of the city and 100 photos of the Olympic Stadium. Beware of Athens aka our accommodation failOur Athenian itineraryThe real face of Athens I have been interested in Greece since primary school, when the teacher introduced us and poured into our heads its ancient history. I don’t know why, but I’ve always liked the idea that thousands of years ago people lived the way they wanted, by the sea, in the heat and in their free time, either speculating over the…

    St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, during a global pandemic

    The title of the article sounds pretty apocalyptic, but don’t worry, everything turned out well! I would like to look back on previous years and at the same time compare my experience with this year. And I also have a lot of great photos for you, so keep reading. Patrick’s Day takes place every year on March 17. Which was nice this year, for example, because I had time off in the middle of the week. Patrick’s Day is also kicking off bank holidays in Ireland – it’s really a long way from the beginning of January to the middle of March without the holidays. As for history, I’m not…

    Ibiza off season

    The winter in Ireland did not disappoint again – it is raining like crazy. To survive this down season, I have decided to go back in time and share with you my trip to Ibiza in the spring of 2016. Before I dive into the stories and photos, you probably wonder who would voluteraly go to Ibiza and even off season. Well… me haha I haven’t been to Spain as such yet (but I have it on my list!), at that time I needed the sun and I wanted something extra, because I had city trips ahead of me. Ryanair had sales again and Ibiza smiled at me at the…

    Waterford Walls: a street art paradise in the oldest Irish city

    You don’t have to have a bachelor’s degree from art school, or wander around the train stations with a spray can in hand at night to appreciate what I’m about to show you. Okay, so what is Waterford Walls and why I won’t shut up about it? Waterford Walls is a street art festival that has been held in the Irish city of Waterford for six years. Although Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland, it has fallen economically after 2008 and unfortunately it is still trying to get out of it (every second store in the city is closed and the situation is not improving after Corona). Despite the…

    My fav spots in Ireland

    This will totally be a trip down the Memory Lane. Recently I woke up with a feeling when I just want to go somewhere where I haven’t been for a long time, preferably in nature (I blame you, you beautiful warm sun). Well, considering what’s happening now and also that I’m stranded in Dublin and I’m not that close to nature (and somehow I miss the real Czech one), I decided to aerate oooold photos and show you various Irish nooks. To the sounds of Selena Gomez’s new album, I’m going to rummage through my hard drive and I’m saying in advance that I don’t know what awaits us. And…

    Flying above Copper Coast Geopark in a helicopter

    A helicopter flight over the Waterford coast was a gift from me and my mom’s friend for my mom’s birthday two years ago. The company operating these flights flies over several destinations in Ireland and we chose the Copper Coast Geopark because we know the place pretty well. Copper Coast Geopark is a coast in southern Ireland stretching 25 km from Kilfarrasy Beach to Stradbally Beach. In addition to beautiful beaches and sea views, the geopark also has a lot of history. For lovers of geography and geology a little info from Wiki: the coast is of volcanic origin and there are Neolithic dolmens, fortresses from the Iron Age, pre-Christian…

    Gothic beauty called Johnstown

    Let’s go back in time to July 2019 when we went on a trip to East Ireland – to a park called Johnstown which can be found right by Wexford town. This park is not any special except there are peacocks running free & wild and there is a castle, too! Surely you’ve never seen a castle. Let alone an Irish one! This one in Johnstown is visually different from the rest British-Scottish like castles. The Johnstown one looks more like a chateau (yep, this is an English word). The first mention of the estate dates back to the 12th century, when it was owned by the Norman family. During…

    Belfast: what to see and do

    After eight years in Ireland and eternal planning, my mom and I finally went to Belfast. In the article I will melt over the beauty of the Northern Irish metropolis, but it will also be an informative type of an article, because I think that there is not enough tips on TripAdvisor. Sadly, when I Googled what to see in Belfast, TripAdvisor showed me about only three places and I thought there wasn’t much to see and do in Belfast. So my mom and I went without any plan and we thought we would get off the bus and wander around. So we got off the bus and we were…

    In the footsteps of Irish Nature: county Wicklow

    Some time in mid-August there was a brand new challenge awaiting me – it was the first time meeting my new friend E. which I’ve got to known via Instagram. E. lives in Dublin and knows its surroundings pretty well so she has decided that we spend the day in mountains. I was excited until I realize that that is exactly what a serial killer would say. I’ve been following E. on Instagram for a while now and I’ve been loving her shots since the first day. Usually she posts great shots of Irish nature or parts of Dublin. I will not get into how we started to talk. The…

    Beauty of West Ireland: Ross castle and Killarney

    Welcome to another travelog around Ireland! This time I’m taking you with me to the most visited part of Ireland, County Kerry and Killarney town. If you haven’t been to Kerry at least once, you haven’t been to Ireland! Masses of tourists in tourbuses driving from Dublin through Cliffs of Moher to Kerry to gush over the real Irish nature, to visit Skellig Michael where the latest Star Wars have been shot, so they could cross out another thing from their bucket list. Killarney is a small town with approx. 20,000 inhabitants which lives basically only from tourism. We noticed that on our arrival but let’s start from the beginning.…
